Girls: The Complete Second Season

($49.99 Blu-ray, $39.99 DVD; HBO)

The second season of star/creator Lena Dunham’s 21st century Brooklyn hipster Sex and the City takes some unexpected turns and twists, balancing comedy, drama and even pathos. What status quo? Out actor Andrew Rannells reprises his role as Hannah’s (Dunham) queer roomie/ex-boyfriend, this time stirring up serious drama when he gets a little too close with Marnie (Allison Williams). This one’s a must. The generous trove of extras includes deleted and extended scenes, an episode 5 table read, Dunham’s interviews from Charlie Rose and the New Yorker Festival, behind the scenes featurette, gag reel, and more!
